Thank you for taking part in my survey last week!
This is the last email for now, but the first step towards victory in the March ’12 primary. After today, we’re off to talk to Texans about my 35 years of experience in the oil, gas and natural gas pipeline industry and our fight to protect Texas from job-killing federal regulation.
AND THE ANSWER IS
For those of you who chose that fracing is Answer B: A completion process that uses pressurized water, frac fluid and sand to fracture hard rock formations, YOU’RE CORRECT! The other answers are actually uninformed views being spread by a liberal media: fracing is neither environmentally polluting, nor is it a new drilling technology. The first frac in the U.S. was in 1947!
HOW DOES FRACING WORK?
My friends at America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA) have put together this brief, easy to understand animated video; please watch it and forward it to your friends. I am always available to explain it in more detail if you should like.
NOT SO BAD AFTER ALL
As you can see, when implemented using the industry’s best practices, fracing is a safe process that poses no risk of polluting either our precious groundwater or land. To summarize, not only does the fracing process take place 1-2 miles below any ground water or aquifer that is a source of our drinking water – but frac fluid (consisting of water, sand and less than 5% chemicals) is now being developed so environmentally friendly that an industry executive drank their new fluid (without the sand, of course). Companies are now developing ways to filter fresh water from the frac fluid and reuse it for jobs on other wells, greatly reducing the amount of new water used in the process. Now that’s recycling!
Fracing is truly critical to the development of America’s enormous shale gas reserves, and to independence from oil and gas supplied by the Middle East. But this technology is at risk of being overregulated by a liberal Obama Administration.
I’m off to travel the state to spread awareness of the job-killing threats to Texas’ oil and gas business in Obama’s America. Every step of the way, I need your help! From Dalhart to Del Rio, I need the friendly support of Texas’ proud County Chairs.
Texas demands leadership on the Railroad Commission with extensive and proven oil, gas and natural gas pipeline industry experience. I am that person, but need your help to open the door to your county so that I might show Texans that I am most qualified candidate for a seat on the Railroad Commission!
